It used to be Illamasqua, they had the best imagery back in the day when Julian was in the mix. I dont see much of them these days.
Melt do have amazing Imagery, I am also a huge fan of Sugarpills.

I’m inspired by Chanel and Lucia Pica’s work, and Pat McGrath’s runway videos and archive photos. I also love the MAC artist tutorial videos on their site.

I don’t often look at the visual images (meaning face ones, showcasing the makeup) but when I do, it’s probably Chanel or Dior that inspire me because I aspire to (don’t necessarily achieve but do aspire to) that sort of timeless, elegant makeup look rather than some of the more “cutting edge” stuff that companies like MAC, UD and so many others show in their ads.

Definitely Pat McGrath and Natasha Denona! Their looks are both interesting and achievable. At 61 years young, that’s what I’m looking for!

It was always and only MAC up until about 6 years ago. Then Tom Ford for awhile, then Pat McGrath but nowadays not any, really. I do like MAC and Pat McGrath how-to/tutorials still.

I tend to look for timeless and elegant kind of visuals for makeup, so it would be brands that are doing a ‘better’ version of neutrals. I recall seeing a photo of Kim K. advertising her Neutrals palette 2 and I did like the coppery eye look she did.

It’s Pat McGrath for me. The inspiration imagery is always stunning, it hypes me up every time! I second Nancy’s comment about the looks she posts; it’s just icing on the cake.
